"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun."
Katharine Hepburn

On my desk at work. I find this motivational, because it reminds me that I can make my own choices, such as get the body of my dreams, instead of doing what others expect me to, which in this case would be to do nothing.

At home, I have a bunch of quotes collected from emails and letters from my friends and family, basically telling how much they love me. It gives me strength to continue when I know they believe in me.

The biggest obstacle to walking (exercising) is getting your shoes on. After that you just put one foot in front of the other. emoticon

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today." I've written this quote on a post-it on my desk. I'm good at the first part. As for the second... easier said than done.

I found a quote earlier this week (not sure who to give the credit to) that is motivating me right now. I am just having a tough time getting started.

"Make today 1% better than yesterday. Let go of the past and believe."

I have posted this on my SparkPage, my computer screen at work, and at home.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

This is posted on my desk at work, I look at it often!

"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more luck I have." -- Thomas Jefferson

This is pasted on my fridge. I like this quote because it reminds me that I have a goal that I'm attempting to reach. If I take out the wrong thing from the fridge, I might stumble but that doesn't mean that I won't make the goal...I will just have to work HARDER to achieve it. It does not mention FAILURE which nobody likes to hear. LOL and as I'm a touch lazy the having to work harder than I already am is a very strong reminder to not take out the ice cream!

Okay, I've drawn a complete blank, except for my favorite verse in the Bible. I think it's so relevant right now in my life because I am trying to slow down, and because I am trying to listen to His voice more. "Be still, and know that I am God..." Psalm 46:10

I am going to post it on my bathroom mirror so I see it first and last thing every day. Hmmm...maybe I'll even put it in my car and at my desk at work. It can apply to so many different situations.

Linda, I'm almost embarrassed to ask - What is the Abigail Van Buren quote? emoticon

Mine is the Abigail Van Buren quote. It is inside my medicine cabinet door where I keep my deodorant.
I think I need to decorate it a little to draw my attention to it more.
